Abel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more calves and heifers to fatten and sell.

Abel's story

Abel is a cattle fattening farmer in Maikalo, Sembabule district and has four children. He is a permanent resident in Sembabule and that is where he carries out his farming. Sales from his farm are still meager due to the fact that he has fewer cows to meet his customers' needs.

He is seeking a loan to buy more calves and heifers to fatten and later sell to realize increased income for survival. This will expand his farm and also increase the income he earns.
